Vacation Bible School 2020 will involve families serving in our community. There will be a list of possible service opportunities/ideas posted in the August Newsletter and on our website. As you have time during the weeks of 8/9 and 8/16 we encourage you to find ways to serve those in your community and/or neighborhood. While you are serving please document that with pictures. Then send those to Michele,

Ephesians 6 Ministry

Our Sunday School uses a "rotational model" for the younger children, enabling them to get to know a large number of adults in the congregation (and vice versa!). For more info about our Sunday School program, contact our Family Ministries Coordinator, Michele Amick (click here). 

 

Planning for Ephesians 6 Ministry this fall (Sept – Nov) is underway.  The Board of Education is looking at creative ways to pursue our goals for Ephesians 6 classes while being safe.  Stay tuned for information about this later this summer/or as it develops.
